    Hi guys! I'm wondering, do you always use Wordpress even for small sites (5-10 pages) or do you use static HTML sites for that?

    Thanks in advance!

    Using a static site is just like reinventing the wheel every time

    I use WP for almost all. Wish i HAD used it for all. I use a couple of WYSIWYG site builders like "Coffee Cup" as well. Wish I hadn't bothered.

    Learning the best install for WP (i.e what theme and plugins to use and how to config them) was one of the best uses of my time ever.

    WP just seems to outrank anythig else I try.
    Even designed loads of different template styles with artisteer, so I can have squeeze pages long form sales pages, video review pages or whatever.

    Stick to WP, just use an external editor (Windows live writer is better these days - and free of you are a Windows user) 'cause the built in editor for WP is still the worst part of the whole shebang.

    Using Word Press makes life soooooooooooooooooooooooooooooooooooooo much easier. Right now I'm working on an E-commerce store using Magento and while it's kinda fun, it can also be a giant pain in the ass. But I'm gonna stick with Magento until Word Press can offer me a decent ecommerce solution.

    I'm all in for WP with all my sites.. (well, I mostly do small sites, though...)

    But for PPC landers it's equally ok to just get a good designer to build a fast-loading html site.

    Thanks everyone for the replies! :)
    I'm in for WP I'm just concerned about the space on my current host since it's on a minimal plan. Time to get a new hosting plan I suppose :)
